Salaam Alaikum Brothers and Sisters


I have a quick question on the hadith narrated by Imam Jafar Sadiq (AS) im pretty sure that meantions a 94 yr old man by the name of Unwan Al Basri.  here is a link if you want to read the full hadith its like 2-3 pages long. I had a few questions regarding this hadtih


1) is this the complete hadith


2) what is the meaning of it, why did the imam turn him away?


3) there have been ulama that have said if you read this hadith everyday knowledge will flow into the person like light fills the room, has anybody else heard this?

You can YouTube Unwan Al-Basri and you will find a few lectures that have been given explaining the narration. I have also seen some books written doing a detailed explanation and analysis of this narration. Apparently Ayatullah Qazi Tabatabee would not start teaching any new student unless they would give this narration special attention commitment.
